Radiation symbol on map.

Post by kensu » January 16th, 2016, 5:59 pm

Sometimes the radiation trefoil will appear on spots on the map which are radioactive, but some times they won't. Does anyone know what causes this?
I assume it's a bug.

Just solved this. The symbols only appear at night, that must mean the areas glow during the night.
The programmers really thought of everything, didn't they?

Yep! Forgot about that, actually. If you look around enough you can find a geiger counter to take some of the mystery out of life.

Yup! I believe they appear at either 6pm or 8pm and last until around 5 or 6 am. This carries over to indoor zones too. I will frequently wait around when finishing off Cochise to make the mini-maze a lot easier.

I just always made sure that whoever had the Blackstar key also took a rad suit for a speedy exit once everything started to go.

I used to do that... and then one time that poor bastard got jumped while wearing a rad suit. After that, I just made sure I finished things at night.
